A string of clues, written in an ancient language, points the way to legendary mountain of gold. It's a treasure vast enough to undermine the world's economy, and a mad South American generalissimo will stop at nothing to get it. The only person who can decipher the clues, Dr. Terri Pomfret, is squarely in his crosshairs�until CURE intervenes. Remo and Chiun will have to protect the professor while they follow the trail from one continent to the next, fending off assaults from a rival House that has forgotten its centuries-old treaty with Sinanju. Gold can make fools of most men, but not the Destroyer.
Remo Williams is The Destroyer, a New Jersey beat cop recruited�through highly unorthodox methods�by a secret government law-enforcement organization. Trained to become the most deadly assassin, Remo is America's last line of defense against mad scientists, organized crime, ancient undead gods, and anything else that threatens the Constitution. An action-adventure series leavened with social and political satire, the Destroyer novels have been thrilling readers worldwide for decades.
